* Uniqueness of setting
* Writing style
* Tedious and dull at points.
This book came out as a surprise to me. When this book was delivered to me there was no anticipation whatsoever. After scrutinizing cover and blurb I was disappointed. But as they say never judge a book from its cover. This again proves its expediency in this case also. ‘Maya in search of a tantric father’ is beautiful exhibition of Indian culture, a culture which is of age of sun, which is diverse like different sizes of shankha in sea. Author depicts the spirituality of this country beautifully by the eye of Maya. Genre like spirituality which is so rare in Indian market will be relieved after backed up by books like Maya….
Story was undoubtedly superb. A brilliant piece of work and then showered with the cultural ride. I wish this book would have supported by a bit more gripping writing style. Writing is so simple and straightforward that, at places, even the biggest turns of story passed like slippery jelly ball into the throat without even feeling it. The theme of the book was not matching with the writing style at all. Due to weak writing and dialogues sometimes reader may lose his interest. But to them it’s my humble request is that please give it a read it’s worth to read.
